February 2005 will be my fourth trip to New Zealand since 1996, to fish with Dennis. My son Bob has accompanied me twice and will make the February trip, also. If fly fishing is your passion, a stint with Dennis in NZ will establish a new plateau. We did mostly heliocopter fishing which gave us access to the more remote areas. The beauty of NZ and the spectacular rivers is part of the whole fishing experience - you have to see it to believe it.

Dennis is the consumate guide - he puts you over fish, knows the right flies and most important, he's a lot of fun to be with! Dennis believes that fly fishing is meant to be fun.All details are taken care of so that you have the best time possible.

The guest house on Dennis's property, is the perfect place to stay. Robyn, Dennis's wife, makes sure all the amenities are available so that you stay is comfortable.

If you're looking for the best in fly fishing for trout, I urge you to contact Dennis and have a go at it.
